Another successful ‘Poppies in the Sand’


The fourth MBG ‘Poppies in the Sand’ Anzac commemoration was another great success, thanks to all those community members who helped ‘plant’ and dismantle the 28,000 poppies comprising this year’s design of a 15 metre wide wreath. Thanks also to the roster volunteers who had to endure some ordinary weather, and a special mention of staff and students from the Australian Industry Trade College, Qld, who put in many hours over the four days and were clearly moved by their Albany Anzac experience, which they described as life changing. They were inspired by our poppy project and how it brought community together in so many dimensions. We hope to maintain the connection with the College for 2018.
